Joy of joys! So this morning I woke up to these news…
Natalia Mateo has been nominated for TWO Jazz ECHOs in the categories “Vocalist of the Year” and “Newcomer of the Year! Not that simply playing on this album and releasing it on the (also 4 time ECHO winning) label ACT Music was crazy enough but seeing how it now has been nominated in TWO categories of one of German Jazz’s most prestigious awards is simply thrilling! It’s not too long ago that this whole project started as a pure D.I.Y. endeavor in 2013… Man, life’s good!

For those from outside Germany: The ECHO is one of the major music industry awards in the country and is being awarded by the German Phono Academy.
